    Re: Who is Redszone's #10 prospect?

    Baseball America started revealing their top 10 prospects list today starting with the Orioles. Don't get too excited though, the Reds top ten list won't be out until January 14th. By that time, Spring Training will only be a month away.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    I went with Dorn as well. Even with his sever splits he could be a very viable ML LF in GABP. Him and Francisco are our only 2 developed power threats currently with Waring, Logan and Brown in the tubes. If Phillips can play everyday with similar style splits to Dorn, why couldn't a guy with 30 - 40 HR potential take his lumps against a few limited quality LH in the NL.

    Ben (Centerville, OH): The Reds rotation is pretty set 1-4 (Volquez, Harang, Cueto, Arroyo), but who do you see emrging as the 5th starter for the Reds out of: Micah Owings, Homer Bailey, Daryl Thompson, Ramon Ramierez, and Matt Maloney?

    SportsNation Jim Callis: (2:26 PM ET ) I'd still give Bailey every opportunity. If it's not him, wouldn't surprise me if Matt Maloney snuck in there.

    Who is this Ben guy? Is that you OBM? That dude seems like he is straight off of RZ for sure.

    I think I may add Dallas Buck to the next poll. He's sort of the forgotten man but he could make a huge jump on these lists next year if he regains the velocity he lost from Tommy John surgery. His changeup and slider are already quality pitches and his fastball has great sink. If he can regain his low-90's fastball he's got a chance at developing into a top-of-rotation caliber starter IMO.

    W/ TJS he might retain that and then some.

    Re: Who is Redszone's #10 prospect?

    a buck rebound would definitely make the dunn trade look better.

    can some people (doug, obm, mario, etc, ..) give your take on eta's for the top 10?

    Of RZ's top 10 yes that's probably about what I would say also. Although I am starting to again wonder if Stubbs may not make it up until '10 at the earliest at this point. And Francisco late in '11 if at all, '09 in AA will tell alot about him IMO. But i'll add a couple of more guys who I think should be in the top ten.

    Dorn - mid to late '09
    Mes - mid-late '12

    I'll take a stab at it, even though I'm nowhere near as esteemed as the three guys you mentioned by name.

    If by 'arrived', you mean up in the Majors for good, here are my (conservative?) estimations:
    Prospect #1 - Yonder Alonso - 2011
    Prospect #2 - Todd Frazier - 2010
    Prospect #3 - Neftali Soto - 2012
    Prospect #4 - Drew Stubbs - 2010
    Prospect #5 - Chris Valaika - 2010
    Prospect #6 - Kyle Lotzkar - 2012
    Prospect #7 - Daryl Thompson - 2010
    Prospect #8 - Juan Francisco - 2012
    Prospect #9 - Juan Duran - 2014
    Prospect #10 - Chris Dickerson - 2009
